I have a huge backlog of resources that I’ve been planning to post about in this blog but, just because of time constraints, have not gotten around to doing. Instead of letting that backlog grow bigger, I regularly grab a few and list them here with a minimal description. It forces me to look through these older links, and help me organize them for my own use. I hope others will find them helpful, too. These are resources that I didn’t include in my “Best Tweets” feature because I had planned to post about them, or because I didn’t even get around to sending a tweet sharing them.
Here are This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:
11 Sounds That Your Kids Have Probably Never Heard is a great post from Mental Floss. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The History Of Technology.
London 2012: Torch relay heading for 1,000 places is from the BBC and has numerous interactives. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The London 2012 Olympics.
The Children’s Olympics is a useful interactive from Succeeding With Science. I’m also adding it to that list.
Rokker is a new app that lets you listen to music and create playlists. I’m adding it to Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Music Sites.
